The School District of Lee County

Lee County schools have been out of session since a little before Hurricane Irma and they're not set to return until September 25th. 

Lee County School District Superintendent Gregory Adkins said this date is later than the school district intended. 

"The recovery process is taking quite longer than we thought it would," said Adkins at a press conference. "And we found that most of our buildings did sustain damage."

Gov. Rick Scott visited the Florida Power & Light staging area at Southwest Florida International Airport on Tuesday. He also visited flooded areas of Southwest Florida.

Utility trucks, prepping to restore power to the region were lined up far into the horizon. Scott briefly spoke to reporters about the power situation in the area. 

"I've been to shelters. I know everyone wants their power back," said Scott. "It's the biggest thing we can do right now, but we gotta be safe about it."
